Call for Help

Welcome to Community Missions

Since its founding in 1925, Community Missions (CMI) has provided a unique blend of services to address the needs of the Niagara community. In general, CMI serves a vulnerable population of individuals that, through a variety of circumstances, have been underserved, marginalized, overlooked and challenging in their presentations and behaviors.

The initial population served was homeless individuals and families, which are still served today. The agency currently provides 22 programs within its four divisions: Crisis & Community Services, Mental Health Housing Services, Mental Health Recovery Services, and Youth Services.

The agency serves a diverse set of populations, including youth, adults, families, homeless, youth involved with the juvenile justice system, youth and adults with psychiatric challenges, persons living with HIV/AIDS, trafficked youth and adults, and ex-offender parole individuals.


Gratitude Campaign Letter to the Editor Follow-Up

Compassion In Action is more than Community Missions’ slogan -- it is a guiding principle for all our services. We believe acts of compassion don’t have to be grand; small acts of kindness can change the world around us.

Gratitude Campaign Letter to the Editor

On April 26, the Niagara Gazette ran a Letter to the Editor from Sister Beth Brosmer, OSF. Following 11 years as Director of Heart, Love and Soul Food Pantry in Niagara Falls, Brosmer joined the Community Missions' Board of Directors. Her idea of launching a "Gratitude Campaign" is one the Mission fully supports, and is another way of living out our tagline of showing Compassion In Action.

May is Mental Health Month

Since the start of the pandemic, more and more people are talking about mental health. An increasing number of folks are starting to see it for what it is: one important component of your overall health and well-being, just like your physical health. But mental health conditions, resources, and conversations can still feel complicated and out of reach.
